Here we are, it’s the finale of Marvel’s Lando series. Let’s get ready to get dashing as hell.
WARNING: THERE ARE SPOILERS AHEAD. YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO ME. WHO IS THE MORE FOOLISH? THE FOOL OR THE FOOL WHO FOLLOWS HIM?
Lando finds himself in quite the pickle. He’s on the Emperor’s ship, his best buddy Lo is in a Bacta tank and may be losing his soul to his implants, he is left with only a pigboy pawnstar because his Thundercat ninjas turned on him, and he probably seduced the bounty hunter sent to kill him… oh Lando, I need a Colt 45 right now.
Well Lando and Samus the cut-rate bounty hunter are calling each other baby… so it’s safe to say she isn’t going to give Lando to the emperor. That’s cool of her. She also doesn’t blow up the ship because she has a soft spot for Lobot, everybody loves Lobot… TUNE IN THIS FALL FOR EVERYBODY LOVE’S LOBOT THE NEW ZANY COMEDY ONLY ON CBS!
Well the thundercat ninjas can talk, and boy are they pissed about something, something, something Sith artifacts and they kill the pigboy pawnstar. So the bargain bin HK-47 turns on Samus and now we have a battle of not a real Sith one armed Thundercat and a bounty hunter… that’s pretty cool I guess. We also finally get to see Lando do some of the smooth talking that he’s known to do. Most satisfying of all we get a bit more Lobot backstory… everybody loves Lobot.
I won’t ruin the rest of the story for you. Overall this was a good, not great, comic with some fantastic art and a few memorable characters. The problem is that the characters that were lovable were Lando and Lobot, not the characters invented for the story. The characters invented for the story, and not found elsewhere in the Star Wars universe, were disposable from start to finish, and they felt like it.
Lando was a decent read and I enjoyed parts of it quite a bit, but was it worth the twenty bucks it would cost to get all four books? Probably not.
May the Force be with you Star Wars comic fans.
